Interface VisualPropertyValueEditor<V>

  • Type Parameters:
    V - target data type for this editor.

    public interface VisualPropertyValueEditor<V>
    Provides a GUI Editor for a data type. To support new data type, this should be implemented. This interface is an exact copy of ValueEditor, but with the additional parameter for showEditor that informs the VisualPropertyValueEditor instance of the visual property that is being edited. This is useful for editors that need to know the boundaries of the visual property.
